'The Wizard of Oz' - Ozmosis (free download)

Yes! Someone has done it! Not that I'd ever had the idea but now I've heard it, it seems so right. What am I on about?

Well, this summer, after my wedding, I went on the customary honeymoon. We went to Greek and it was all lovely. Anyway, pretty much every taverna there, every time we ate, played 'Zorba The Greek' and it was unofficially the honeymoon anthem (that and UB40's 'Red Red wine' which previously I was not a fan of). And now Ozmosis on some 'Alphabet Aerobics' type stuff uses 'Zorba The Greek' as a beat as he raps as it picks up pace. Awesome stuff.

The rest of the mixtape sounds pretty awesome too - you can download it free here. He raps over a load of recently famous beats and tunes in true mixtape fashion. But it's not just Hip Hop - Blur's 'Song 2' is in there, a bit of Gnarls Barkley, possibly some Arctic Monkeys and also some Linkin Park. Oh, some Coldplay too. Solid and interesting - one way to get yourself heard.
